New Variants of Golf GTI

Volkswagen announced that it will pull the wraps off two new variants of its latest Golf GTI hot hatch at the Wörthersee GTI meeting in Austria - the limited production Adidas Golf GTI and the GTI Excessive Study.

Starting with the Adidas Golf GTI that's pictured here, the limited edition model was created in collaboration with the famous sporting-goods maker Adidas and it follows in the footsteps of the Golf GTI Pirelli special. It will be produced with a limited run of 4,410 copies with sales set to begin in July. It keeps the standard model's 210HP 2.0-liter TSI engine and front wheel drive layout, adding bespoke touches such as the newly designed 18-inch alloy wheels, specially designed sports seats and trim. It also gets standard bi-xenon headlights and LED taillights.

Volkswagen has yet to release photos of the Golf GTI Excessive Study, but the German automaker said that the one-off prototype will feature a new bodykit inspired from the world of motorsports as well as an upgraded interior. I am not sure why Volkswagen uses the word “Excessive” here as it has a negative connotation. But, let’s hope that it turns out to be good.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
